Description: Victims of crime and other witnesses in court have greater reason for concern today than in the past related to exposure of personal information pursuant to litigation.  Pseudonym and anonymity policies, developed prior to the Digital Age, remain disfavored based on constitutional protections afforded to the accused.  This webinar will address emerging case law and statutory remedies protecting personal information in evidence and defining it as private, including Jane Doe status, freedom of information exceptions, and restrictions on electronic technology in the courtroom.
